May 01, 2014The University Liggett boys' baseball team split its first league games of the season last week.
After missing the first Michigan Independent Athletic Conference game due to inclement weather, the Knights had to wait a week to play.
They traveled to Ann Arbor Greenhills and won 6-2 behind the solid pitching of Gehrig Anglin.
Adam Fiema had five hits, while Bobby Kaiser had two hits, including a triple, and two RBIs. Anthony Simon also had two hits, including a double and scored three runs.
Two days later, Liggett hosted Greenhills and played one of its worst games in several years, a 5-1 loss.
Fiema suffered the loss, thanks to a wild streak on the mound and a couple of defensive mishaps.
"The guys played well at Greenhills, but were not focused at all in our second game," head coach Dan Cimini said. "The guys have to come to the ball field ready to play. They coasted and it cost them today. This can't happen."
It was the Knights' first MIAC loss in four years.
Liggett is 1-1 in the MIAC and 3-3 overall.
